“Mother Nature flexed her muscles in Minnesota this week as torrential downpours almost claimed the life of a 16-year-old motorist after his car was swallowed by a sinkhole that opened up on a road.

The teenager was on his way to work on a local farm near Redwood Falls when he accidentally drove into a massive hole that had recently been cut away in the road by heavy rainfall…….”


What if this was your son, nephew or brother? This is why we need to prep. Even teenagers need some survival lessons. I know sinkholes are kinda new to most, but they are on the rise. Information about them needs to get around and what to do if you or someone else falls into one. To the best of my knowledge, Florida holds the trophy for the most sinkholes in the USA.

Get Out Fast With The Best Car Escape Tool

Recommended From Amazon (LINK):

The above amazon link is a knife; it’s only $6.50 (USD) It has a glass breaking end, and a safety blade on the end for cutting away a seat belt. Seat belts are “ok” but when you can’t get out of them, or some other unforeseen issue, …it’s time to get outa that belt, a nice sharp quick cut-away blade does the trick! And if you follow me, you know I’m a knife guy.

How many times have you wished you had something sharp to cut open into something??? I don’t worry; always carry. Not trying to sell this particular knife. Has good reviews (or it did) ;you just need to find a knife with both tools on it. I chose this one cause it’s cheap, but descent for the money. So whether you’re in the water in a sinking car, or in a car in a sinkhole (as the case above) you’ll have a tool that can save your life or someone else’s.

The Craftsmanship Of Living In The Wilderness

“Many of us would love the opportunity to do such a thing; although I honestly have to ask if we would do it, given the chance. Voicing such a desire when we’re sitting warm and comfortable at home is easy. But packing up and actually doing it is much harder. Yet, there are a few people who do just that; ……..”

“………..Living in the wild doesn’t require the courage to stare down a bear and arm wrestle it; it requires the courage to befriend that bear and be a good neighbor to it. If you have to fight the bear every time you see it, you will spend all your time fighting bears. But if you learn to live with the bear, befriending it, you can enjoy one another’s company, on those rare occasions when you meet…..”
